A sumptuous new production of a timeless classic, created by David McAllister, Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet. With lavish sets and costumes by award-winning designer Gabriela Tylesova, The Sleeping Beauty tells the story of Princess Aurora, doomed by the evil fairy Carabosse to prick her finger on a spindle and die on her 16th birthday. The Lilac Fairy comes to the rescue, changing the curse from death to a 100-year sleep. When the time comes, it is the handsome Prince Désiré who finds the sleeping beauty and breaks the spell. Set to Tchaikovsky's sublime score, this enchanting production casts a spell of delight all the way to true love's kiss.
Starring Tony David Cray, Orchestra Victoria, Frances O'Riordan
